Facing TV Problems? Ask a TV Technician.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, is the original Sanyo remote available / usable?
With the screen showing the "Please Select Language" choices, have you tried using the TV's left side panel buttons; ▲ CH ▼ to select English and INPUT as ENTER ?
And the result please? ...were you able to select "English" and after INPUT (ENTER) progress to the next menu/window?
No "English" that can be selected?
This is very significant as it would indicate two (2) major concerns:
Please post back how you would want to approach this and/or should additional information be needed.
On the side panel?
Have you tried gently tapping on the side panel button a number of times in the hope of jarring it back into action?
We're back to the above 2 possibilities / propose fix.
Might an original remote control serve your need then?
I understand and no prob.
